Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” on AgustaWestland chopper deal and wondered why CBI raids have not been conducted against Congress leaders in connection with the case.

Kejriwal asked whether those named in Italian court order should not be immediately arrested and interrogated.

“Why is the PM silent on Agusta? First BJP spared Vadra, now protecting entire Congress top brass in Augusta?,” the Delhi Chief Minister said on twitter, referring to Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra.

He also tweeted, “Shudn’t those named in Italy court order be immediately arrested n interrogated? CBI raid had been conducted at me, but why there is no raid at Congress persons (sic).”

The controversial deal to buy VVIP choppers and the alleged bribes paid in clinching it have triggered a political storm after an Italian court cited handwritten references to Sonia Gandhi, her political secretary Ahmed Patel and former Air Chief S P Tyagi by a middleman in a judgement that convicted the helicopter company’s chief executive.

    One has to ask this double faced Kujli what did he do with ex CM of Delhi cases for which he was crying from every roof top. Before giving sermon for cheap publicity just clean owns house with you election symbols broom and also cleanliness of his own brain is also long overdue. A real nautanki man,perfect joker.

        Kejri does not talk about any body below PM. Probably he still feels he is fighting election against him.
